Today’s Action: Get out the abortion vote!

Your involvement in local politics this year could mean the difference between American women having access to legal, safe abortions or further criminalization of life-saving, reproductive healthcare.

At least 21 states are preparing for crucial elections this fall for state Supreme Court justices, governorships, and statehouses that could turn the tide in the fight for abortion rights. The overturning of Roe v. Wade placed the lives of birth-givers throughout the country at even greater risk, with those in red states subjected to extremist trigger laws designed to force unwanted and dangerous pregnancies. We must ensure that no more anti-choice conservatives are elected to public office — lives quite literally depend on it.

Outcomes in upcoming elections will help determine how and where county sheriffs will enforce abortion bans and investigate pregnancies, whether or not county prosecutors will pursue abortion cases in general, and the fate of state constitutional protections altogether.

If you haven’t yet, it’s time to plug into your local politics and find out who is going to stand up for abortion rights in your community. Check out this guide for just a few of the upcoming elections. Find the best candidates that will protect reproductive care in your community for years to come and help put them in office!

Make sure you’re prepared for upcoming elections and vote for candidates who will fight for comprehensive abortion care in America!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
